of times. this is the first time i've done one in new york city, and it's in a lot of ways a different animal. you learn how fragile a big city can be, a big strong city like this. it's just different, and that surge, as i said, was really something to behold. >> yeah. >> scott cohn, thank you very much. see you later. >>> coming up next, hurricane sandy hitting long island's massapequa hard tonight turning streets into rivers. more on how the storm is ravaging the northeast and how refineries are being affected as well. we'll be back in two minutes. >>> welcome back. sandy has closed several of the region's major refineries. here's a look at the process to reopen these fuel centers. cnbc's sharon epperson has more. >> reporter: getting a refinery back online after a full shutdown due to a hurricane or major storm can be a lengthy multi-phase operation. the first step, returning evacuated personnel to the refinery, could take a few days depending on conditions and surrounding areas. once on location, the crew evaluates the storm damage, like flooding or downed power lines. if the power
was waiting for its first glimpse of d day white. then giving the kind of cover that it needed to make the move. then giving the kind of cover that it needed to make the move. obviously citi and government have worked out some prices. sue, down to you. >> let's talk more about what's going on at citi and where the bank goes from here lacking forward with me now. first of all, your reaction. i think i heard some of maria's reporting. do you buy the fact that it has been planned for some time? >> there was obviously unhappiness here, but the fact that this suddenly comes out the day after earnings doesn't reflect well on planning at citibank, doesn't reflect well on pandit or the board. >> what's next for city? is it going to become a slimmed down version getting back to core businesses or the not? >> presumably there was tension between pandit and the board. now, one would presume that this whether move things more toward the commercial banking, the traditional sort of business that citigroup was involved in. >> but that will make it harder for them to make money because the business ha
at first blush. kayla takes us inside the citi shake-up. >> when mike o neil was staped at city's chairman, they got the feeling a shake-up would be coming and the report by the new york times reports a picture of pandit's last date marked by shock after what he believed to be strong earnings. one said he resigned immediately and another resigning at year-end and third being fired without cause. he chose to leave immediately. coo john havens agreed to leave within minutes. the following day, pan dit said the move was his choice and based on that quarter's earnings that he would be leaving citi in good hands. a former bank of america executive and bank of hawaii, o neil joined the board and became chairman when dick parsons resigned earlier. they were long preparing for pandit's recession and took an unusual turn in the ongoing succession plans holding talks with two candidates for the vacanted coo role which has yet to be filled. >> it's amazing, thanks, if that departure scenario is true, that mikes michael o neill is making all decisions and forcing his agenda. >> let's talk about that a
at seaside heights. simon hobbs is in for sue herera today. >>> but first, to the aftermath of the storm and president obama's visit to the new jersey coastline. kayla tausche is live in atlantic city. kayla? >> reporter: hi, tyler. we just saw air force one fly right over us and headed likely toward the atlantic city airport. we have tons of residents in atlantic city who turned out very excited, very rambunctious to seat president. it is the first day of sun after days of wind and rain and of course the wreckage of sandy here is evident as a place that used to be home to more of a residential part of the boardwalk. residents would fish off of it and stroll here. not so much the business part of the boardwalk but the wreckage you're seeing here, nonetheless. here in atlantic city the cleanup is just in its early, early stages. some residents who chose to stay behind getting power. i spoke to one resident today who finally got power, got a pump to his basement and started trying to pump out water that had flooded his basement. he was moved to tears when he started talking about watching
is going on here, but let me get anton in first. you're a shareholder of citi? >> i am, indeed. >> what's your next move? how do you see it? >> i'm going continue to hold. i think michael o'neil has a long history of creating valued companies he's been with. i think the transition here is important. michael corbat is very well respected by the regulators. the process is so critical because citi really generates a ton of capital. i think the ability to return some capital through buy backs, through increased dividends is critical. i think the upside to citi has been kind of, you know, sped up here. i think vikram was doing a lot of the right things, but the regulators did not like him. >> you've been waiting for a dividend too. they couldn't pay a dividend after failing the stress test. as a shareholder, are you frustrated? does it make sense it was time for him to go? >> well, i don't think it was time for him to go, but unfortunately the relationship historically was very bad with the regulators, particularly sheila bear, who really embarrassed him by what she wrote in the book about h

. remember during the ldc debt crisis in the '80s with citi. citi was one of the first banks in china. the question is, can you turn that into a real stable and profitable franchise? every other quarter we've had noise in their earnings and balance sheet and i think as an analyst i've always wanted to see them make this business run a little bit quieter, if you will. even the write-off of smith barney, that's an ugly thing because it says they didn't make money on that business and in order to sell it, they had to take a loss. >> you know, jim cramer is on the phone, too. jim, i saw what you tweeted about pandit leaving after a terrific quarter which is worrisome. how should we read this? >> i'm listening to mr. whalen and all well and good, you know, pandit finally got it right. this was an absolutely terrific quarter, there was so much that was good here, international was absolutely terrific, you had very good net interest margin. you know, i got to be really blunt about this. i don't know what the heck is going on here. havens i've known since when i did a ton of business with mor
-year stint. first of all, back in march, keep in mind the federal reserve rejected citi's request to raise its dividend. then in april, shareholders rejected pandit's $15 million pay package, even after two years of a voluntary pay cut. that same dai citi n director michael o'neill chairman. o'neill is a much more hands-on chairman, a trait tra fueled the tension between him and pandit. in july, another misstep. citi overvalued the joint venture it has with morgan stanley. last friday, a person who saw pandit in tokyo said he didn't speak like a man about to lose his job. all of this combing to the fore on monday. that's when citi reported very strong third-quarter earnings. pandit gives no hint on an analyst call he's about to resign. sources say the bank's recent m missteps and differences between pandit and o'neill led to his resignation late monday. one top citi official telling cnbc there had been conversations about pandit and the board about his leaving for multiple weeks. the board having already identified a successor. so after pandit resigns, some of the members of the operating

, and we keep that first and foremost in our minds. >> danny, we always think of you as a new york city guy but you have operations in philly and boston. has the damage there been much different than right along the new jersey/new york coastline? >> well, so far we have none in boston, just to be clear, but we do have two in miami and this was a rare hurricane storm that seemed to avoid miami. so those guys are good. washington, d.c., we're going to check in with them. as i said, i've been hampered myself just because we have no internet and i was able to find a land line to call in to you guys, but we realize we're in a day and age where cell phones -- we have no cell certificaservicn for some reason either. so we're trying to learn. we think that washington is okay. we think that philadelphia is okay. and then up in connecticut we're trying to find out if our west port and new haven shake shacks have electricity. sometimes that coastline gets hit hardest in terms of electricity. as soon as i hang up the phone with you, now that i found a land line, i will try to assess what's going on. we

in new york city but all across the eastern seaboard and we're working with the city and the state and the federal government first of all, kudos to the first responders. they did an incredible job and also to all the employees that were working in these buildings 24/7 for the last few days in particular people working in my building, we almost lost two people with the floods coming in so we're very, very lucky. the effort's ongoing. we're working with con-ed and the city and one of the other priorities is to help relocate some of the companies that have not had the ability to go back in their buildings a little bit. we're assessing our buildings. we sustained storm damage in some of them, not structural but electrical, other buildings are perfectly fine and we're just waiting for con ed to turn on the power as soon as the city lifts the no fly zone, so to speak downtown we'll be able to get them back in but it's going to take some buildings a lot. lot of buildings downtown took significant damage. >> that's an important point that you're helping some companies relocate even if it'
please join the conversation. worldwide@cnbc.com, at@cnbcwex. it was my first day on a new job in the city. and not a lot happened i can tell you apart from people just looked at each other in amazement. they didn't answer the phones either. yeah, an interesting day all around. and what a great buying opportunity. we learned it was probably the buying opportunity of the century. >> ross, that's for sure. stick around, because still to come on the show, as eu banking policy inches closer to getting the green light, we'll hear from the finland bank governor. >>> google continues to move lower in european trade after losing $22 billion in market cap on wall street. >> and microsoft's profits drop falling short of forecasts as the company gets set to launch its new windows 8 software. >> europe's troubled banks could receive funds as soon as the beginning of next year. germany still appears to be eyeing a longer time frame, however. eu leaders have been hammering out the details of a banking union at a summit in brussels. and speaking this morning, ecb policy maker know vat any say
the coastline around 7:00 tonight. the effects will not be over at that time. let me show you why. first of all, if you look closely to the southeast of atlantic city, right about there, that is where the center is. that's where you see kind of a hole in the precipitation. almost like a circular hole right there. and that is moving to the north and west very, very clearly on track. however, it's doing so a little faster than was expected. just a little. that has two effects. one is meaning even more wind because there's a counterclockwise circulation of winds and the forward motion will add to the wind on the north side, in other words, the right-hand side of motion. bottom line, additional storm surge right in through long island and down the new jersey shoreline to around atlantic city. that is a big problem. let's take a look at that storm surge situation. again, we're looking at 3 to 6 feet in general in eastern new england. look what happens. because the water's coming from east to west, it kind of backs in through the long island sound, as an example, to 6 to 11 feet. we're looking at 4 t
citi have told shareholders that's how the land lay? >> well, first, it is perfectly fair if mr. o'neill decides he wants somebody else to convince the board to do it. what i have a problem with here is mr. pandit came out and said this was my own decision. simon and i were talking about this the day it came out. it was nonsensical. now we find out. i agree with harvey pitt. he said given a choice between lying or simply not saying anything, i think mr. pandit should simply say nothing about this. >> i don't know if there's a way to make this a great story from their perspective. but, hey, i don't think that's the way anybody would want to go. it doesn't look good, as bob just said from pandit's perspective. but i think there are a lot of questions about whether they could have communicated better about what was really behind this. like the truth. >> guys, let's finish up with apple. it was supposed to be the big one in corporate earnings this week, reporting of course ultimately weaker than expected ipad sales. the white ipad minis are already selling out. why has the stock been s

be the first two day weather related closure since 1988. new york city is very, very quiet even for 6:00 in the morning. they shut down the transit system last night. people have been heeding that. and a lot of evacuations again in the low lying areas, this so-called zone a where we are. but the worry is that the storm surge if it is as forecast, which will be worse than hurricane irene last year, could create some serious problems in terms of getting in to the subway system, in terms of getting into the con ed steam lines and potentially the electrical system. and so even if the wind doesn't blow out power, there could be pry empty differen preemptive power outages. so that's one of the many reasons that they decided to hunger down with all the financial markets. stay home, there's money to be made later and we'll just deal with it. for now just a little bit of a breeze blowing here. that is clearly supposed to chan change. >> where do you go later? >> you have to find a pole, right? you know that that's -- every guy out in a strong breeze, you've seen -- you've got to find a pole ar
a boost from the storm? first, let's take a look back at the super storm that hit over the last 48 hours. >> new york city is under water. >> don't mess with mother nature. >> i want you to cut through the red tape. i want you to cut through bureaucracy. there's no excuse for inaction at this point. >> i've never seen anything like this in my life. >> describe it as looking like the pictures we've seen at the end of world war ii. it is not overstating it. >>> retailers are looking at the impacts the storm will have on their business, especially as they gear up for the lucrative holiday season. for more, we're joined by the executive vice president of the retail council of new york state. ted, thanks very much for calling in. can you give us a sense of what kind of damage retailers in your area are seeing? >> well, you know, the way that everything is in manhattan right now, it's pretty much shut down, and without power, without electricity, without the subways, without the bridges, it's very difficult for people to get around and to get to the stores. and you've got such a heavy tourism
's going down today and i'm going to be on the first thing smoking out of new york city. >> reporter: now, port authority says the airport is still officially closed and we spoke to delta this morning, they say they are not flying any airplanes in or out of the airport today. they're working on whether or not they can service laguardia tomorrow. they're going to figure it out and as soon as they know, we'll bring it to you. but once the airport does open, remember, there are 7,000 employees that work here at laguardia, getting them to and from the airport without public transportation in new york city is also going to be a challenge. back to you. >> courtney, i think that passenger may have been a little overly optimistic. you know, another thing we've been talking about is the marathon. it's still set to go. are you still running? >> reporter: it is. it's still set to go, i was on a media call the other day, they said as far as they can tell, it's set to be run on sunday. the route also appears to be intact. there are some events associated with a marathon beforehand that are going to ha
breaking news. and this just came into us. it's the first aerial pictures that we have. this is in from we believe the atlantic city, new jersey, region. it was video taken from a helicopter and if you look at that flooding, it shows you just how widespread the flooding is in that part of the garden state which, of course, was one of the hardest hit states and especially, ty, as you were mentioning yesterday and we were talking about, that south central part and the storm surge was unbelievable. in some cases, up to 14 feet. as you can see there are some buildings that are partially submerged at this point. and that looks like parked next a harbor, we are just seeing this now, as you guys are certainly at home. look at the boats piled up. >> that maybe the marina right around where the borgata is on the marina, a couple of the other casinos are there and look at that. is that a dock or is that -- they have about pushed up onto dry land there? >> i think they have been pushed up, they are piled on top. a road, we are hearing. that will give you an idea of not amount extent of the damage but
customers. one of our early earnings -- in mapten, for example, when we opened our first north face store in manhattan, we had -- there was anxiety with our retail customers about that. the brand got stronger in the city and we opened another door the brand still got stronger. there's a tipping point. we have to try to avoid that tipping point. most of our business is as a wholesaler. but we present our brands to consumers in a way no retail partner can. if you go into a north face store or van store, you see all the brands together. we think it makes the brand stronger. it's good for us and them. >> one of the things that people get -- don't understand is that the ag complex doesn't all trade up at the same time. some of the food grains did. but cotton has really gotten cheap. you had very high cotton last year. >> yes, we did. >> is this going through gross margins that cotton's come down so much? >> we had real gross margin challenges last year, particularly in our north american denim business. we lost 400 basis points in gross margins last year. >> gigantic. >> it is gigantic. but we
declined to $171 billion, the first time that the so-called bad bank has comprised less than 10% of citi's balance sheet. the cfo said it's not small enough yet to dissolve back in the bank in the near term. we had a depar tour for citigroup from what jpmorgan's jamie diamond and wells fargo said was a turning point. for citigroup housing shows a different story. mortgage originations though they're up 12% from last quarter, they went down 15% from a year ago. during that same time mortgage related revenues went up some 35% in the u.s. retail banking unit. big questions there on the media call as to why that was happening, but for citi, which ranks fifth for u.s. mortgage origination, the activity remains strong but the upswing in revenues is largely because of heavy refinancing activity. spreads are widening because they're maintaining higher mortgage rates. citi is not looking to gain more share in mortgage refinancing and he actually expects some compression on mortgages in the u.s., but that's a different approach from jpmorgan and wells who were more vocal about actually lowering th
previously served as citigroup of europe. the changes come one day after citi's earnings beat expectation in a conference call which, of course, jim said absolutely nothing about this. >> no. this was the first quarter that was the break out quarter for international. first time that i felt that the company had put a lot of its problems behind it. best knit interest margin. we only had a couple of banks report. people are trying to present this this was logical, this was in the works. this was the least logical, least in the works. corbat terrific. he ran holdings. 48 hours did we know this? i don't know. i got to tell you that the people that i talked to at citi, to say not in the works is being underplayed. >> there's shock at least among a handful of people who i talk to regularly at senior who are senior but no way aware of this. they are shocked. they heard it about an hour prior to the announcement being put out there. and, you know, it seems as though we don't know at this point, although we listen eed t andrew ross sorkin's report right now. there was some contention between board
% from the same time four years ago. compare that to new york city's homicide rate. what's chicago's problem? and what's its supposed solution? they're talking about taxing guns? here's a republican strategist lenny mcallister. first of all the tax on bullets and handguns will do nothing to stop the murders among the gang bangers? am i just dreaming this up? >> this is one of the most ridiculous things i have ever heard of. it's another example of an ivory tower highbrow solution. this is a lot of time what you see from people that are often removed, oftentimes the very far left, progressive. the high tower legislator that -- it's not surprising, too. >> first of all, to the ammo and the guns are being bought illegally on the streets anyway. >> exactly. >> law abiding shopkeepers selling this stuff had nothing to do with it. let get that straight. >> i want to ask you, because you used to live in chicago. it's people who use gun that are killing each other. is this about drugs? are these about racial gangs? why is this happening because it's not happening in many other cities inclu
in just two minutes. >>> get an update on the situation in new york city, and this is a first time we've spoke on it scott, isn't it? i wasn't worried about you, i knew you'd be okay but good to see you, scott cohn joining us with the latest. >> reporter: yes, it was touch and go there for a little while, joe. 12 hours ago from this location, battery park in manhattan, we were, i'm not xnlg raexaggerati running for our lives from the storm surge. if the top steps it would be nine feet. it got to around 13 feet and the water came up very, very fast and when the storm surge came up that meant the flooding would begin, subways flooded, there's a lot of other underground flooding, the brooklyn battery tunnel not far from here was end to end with water. as the city tries to battle back now, that's what they'll be dealing with getting the water out of here, the tide has gone down, another high tide a little over an hour from now not as harrowing as yesterday. look at some of the images from last night, national guard troops going down broadway, trying to get underground fires under control,
an amazing day here. we are in grand central in the heart of new york city and martha stewart has always thought big but grand central is pretty darn big. this is the first -- it is the inaugural american made martha stewart american-made awards. we literally just finished the judging. we all came running out here. martha joins me and bob pittman joins me, good friend of power leverage, crow of clearchannel. glapgss, martha. you saw some amazing entrepreneurs in today's session. >> yes, we did. it is an elevator pitch of five young rising stars with good ideas and they had two -- or three minutes to pitch their idea to us and i think we chose a good one. and this is all about entrepreneurial initiative. this entire event. and it's also about discovering in america the talent that will carry business forward in the united states. there's 28 million small businesses -- small business entrepreneurs here in the united states at the present time. employing people. and i think it's creating jobs, they want to grow their businesses, they want encouragement, and i think it's really, really up to
to close tomorrow, it would be the first two day closure since 1888. they did not like to close these markets for any great length of time. that's a two day wealther relatd closure. bank branchs are closing in manhattan. the city has essentially ground to a halt because they're concerned now about high winds that will start really picking up as the storm gets closer and closer to the new york city area. as you said, the transit system has been shut down. they're trying to tell people to stay home to the extent that they can. and indeed manhattan, although it's very early in the morning here, is quiet and expected to stay that way. the question now is you power outages that are likely to take place and how long it will take for this area to get back to business. but right now, again, equity trading in the u.s. is closed. equity futures also willic trad. and energy trading as well. energy trading will trade electronically, the nymex with the floor will close. so we're seeing even before the storm hits a significant financial impact here. >> that's for sure. scott cohn, stay safe a
